We work hard to maintain a reputation for excellence in customer service, reliability and professionalism. We know how to install skylights above and beyond the manufactures written instructions and to hold up in the harsh weather we are subjected to in the Tropical Florida environment.
Things to consider when choosing skylights:
- The three major skylight types are fixed, ventilating, and tubular.
Fixed skylights do not open. They are good choice if your goal is to provide a roomâ€”such as an attic or stairwellâ€”with extra light.
Ventilating skylights can be opened to provide a room with fresh air in addition to natural light. Because they improve air flow and reduce moisture, they are often installed in kitchens and bathrooms.
Tubular Skylights allow natural sunlight to be directed from the rooftop down through a highly reflective tube, and then diffused at the ceiling level. Tubular skylights capture direct and ambient light, providing exceptional illumination, even on cloudy days and in early morning or late afternoon when the sun is low in the sky.
- The skylight size should never be more than 5% of the floor area in rooms with many windows and no more than 15% of the room's total floor area for spaces with few windows.
- Skylight glazing options are plastic and glass. Plastic is cheaper but not as durable and allows more UV light to enter. Glass, although more expensive, is a superior product.
- Be sure to take into consideration the sunâ€™s path. Skylights on the south- or west-facing portion of the roof will collect direct sunâ€”skylights facing north or east may not get any direct sunlight.

How does it work?
A clear, unbreakable polycarbonate dome mounted on a storm-tested, aluminum flashing on the roof collects and directs sunlight down into the area below through a high-performance reflective transfer tube. This tube connects to a domed translucent or prismatic diffuser that distributes natural light evenly throughout the area without heat gain or loss.
